Bakery Hill Single Malt whisky is an embodiment of the Australian spirit – one of individuality, complexity and strength. It’s very name is synonymous with an uprising that helped define the nation’s character, The Eureka Stockade.
As with classic malt whiskies, Bakery Hill uses only malted barley, yeast and water to achieve its flavour and aroma, and remains true to the authentic ‘single cask’ style.
Yet unlike many other single malts, no caramel is added to enhance the appearance, as they believe its addition would dull the exceptionally fine flavour and diminish your enjoyment. Be reassured, every bottle of Bakery Hill is made according to the finest traditions, with a hint of the early goldfields’ spirit.
Peated and at 51.7% this was selected as the best release of the year. Whereas most peated malt whiskies are very up front with their peat character, “A Wisp of Smoke” is quite the opposite.
The peat is there but curling in and around the stunning character of the malt. You will not be confronted by peat, but rather are entranced by the soft and gentle leather, blue cheese, soft cedar all wrapped up in the characteristic sweetness of Bakery Hill’s Malts.
At almost 10 years old, Cask 106 (barrelled in 2008) is one of exemplary maturity for its age.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Rich pipe tobacco, soft leather and apricots with fresh green apple and a hint of linseed oil and cedar.
Palate: Salted caramel, sweet melon and dried apple. An intriguing hint of gorgonzola dolce piques interest.
Finish: Immensely complex, fresh and salty. It just pleads for another sip whilst long waxy legs wrapping themselves around the glass.
